What is the recommended length of stay at CPI Spanish Immersion Costa Rica? How many hours of Spanish instruction are best?
That depends on your individual goals for learning Spanish. You may study for as little as one week; however, we recommend a minimum study period of two weeks. The 5.5-hour program is offered for those students who desire additional practice in conversation.
Recommendation on length of stay would depend on each person’s individual goals for learning Spanish. You may study for as little as one week to get a jump start on fine tuning your current Spanish skills or perhaps as a means of introducing yourself to the Spanish immersion experience for later extended study. Of course, if your goal is to progress at a quicker pace then a study period of two weeks would be a minimum. On average our students stay at CPI for 3 or 4 week; however, serious learners with defined linguistic goals may decide to stay on for 3 months. It is quite common for students to study at CPI for 4 weeks; continue from home through our live format on-line sessions; and then return to CPI for additional full immersion blocks.
